    Correct Ian, a total ban on steam was imposed on the evening of the 25th by dictat of the NR route director for the NW area. The Fellsman on the 26th ran behind a pair of 37s. Following discussions the agreed fire risk protocol was implemented a couple of days later, this allowed steam to run with diesel assistance until yesterday. Let's hope the damp weather persists.

    Hi everyone,

    Going to be on-board with the family on Monday, does anybody know the likely loco (thinking probably the 8F) and if the diesel will remain on the train all day?

    Thank you in advance for any responses.

    Is it likely to be Galatea on Tuesday given its problems last week?

    UK Steam is predicting Galatea on Monday and 8F Tuesday. Not sure who's got the best oracle.

    Hope to see some pictures and videos of today’s tour. Be good to show my children the views from outside of the train as well as from it. Thank you to all those who contribute to this site. It is one of the things that makes it so unique.
    See you at the line side!

    Nige can you please tell me why you start your clips so early and finish them long after the train has gone.

    Turn the volume up, some people still like to hear the Engine working after its out of view, music is supposed to be played loud.
